Once again it's been a while and time has flown by. Been a hectic week and a half. Lots of traveling and on the road, but getting my daily kenzai load in and haven't missed a day. I've gotten a good routine, Kenzai is just so convenient, love that I can just throw it in my luggage and don't really have to think too much about equipment.
Less than two weeks to go! The end is in sight, but I know I'll continue after.
I've hit the wall and am trying to get over it. This weekend was super busy. Two weddings and lots of travel. I couldn't get to do Kenzai. Even though I brought all my stuff. Yesterday I wanted to get back into the swing of things, however I struggled. First time I'm really struggling in this program so far. Not sure what caused it. My two days off maybe, or just general exhaustion from a crazy busy weekend. I'll see tonight. Maybe it was just a one off. We're almost there so I don't want to chicken out. Hope I get back in the swing of things once I get going tonight.
Time really seems to fly, just got a reminder in my inbox to make a post. It seems like I wrote one just a few days ago, however cannot believe its been ten already.
All is well here. Keeping up with the schedule, although some days its getting a bit hard to keep going. I guess I'm hitting a bit of a wall. Once I am doing the exercises however I'm back in the zone, its just that first step. Keeping the diet more under control these days too and seeing some good weight loss which is awesome! Keep going!!
I am able to do the exercises on an almost daily basis, however recently I've been having a lot of business dinners and haven't been able to keep my food intake under control. Am planning a long weekend trip out of town so will hopefully get it all back under control. Actually looking forward to it. A long weekend away from the recent work stress will do me well I think.
Other than that I'm doing fine! Enjoying it!
I thought I recently updated my blog, however it seems my comments didn't go through , so trying this again.
Things are still going fine, I've actually changed my routine from afternoon exercise to morning exercise which works better for me. I jump out of bed and get right into the action. Great way to wake up too :) and gives me this great energy burst in the morning, feel good about myself.
Kenzai is great fun, enjoying it a lot!
Time for another update. Am enjoying the daily exercise routine and thoroughly enjoying it. Starting to feel more in shape and above all, my foot is holding out well which is a great relief. So far so good!
Sorry for the delayed blog and intro

How do you spend your time? Most weekends I try to get out of Shanghai and explore the surrounding areas. Miss nature in this big city so try to get out and explore what ever nature is around it.
Where are you? Shanghai, China
Why Kenzai Body? It’s a great program, have done it before and it was a great success. I’m redoing it as I got injured and want to get back in shape.
Are you working with an injury? I had a foot injury, but it’s all gone now and am back to full health.
We are living in an era of super hero films, so, who is your real life super hero? Who is someone you look to for inspiration. Hmm tough one! There are so many inspiring people out there. Maybe Roger Federer. He’s been playing top notch tennis for so many years and keeps on going.
Look forward to the next three months.
Still getting along nicely. Jump rope is getting more challenging but still good so far. Having some harder time with the crunch and push-ups. Just getting the minimum numbers, but definitely seeing improvements and getting stronger so I think I’ll be able to do it :) Keep going!
It’s been a while since my last post and some people were wondering if I’m still there. I’m doing fine and am following the exercises. They’re becoming part of my daily routine now, although I did miss one day yesterday. I hope to make up for it. So far so good! :)
The first half of the first week done! Time to introduce myself!
1. What inspired you to sign up for Kenzai Body? I did this program before and really annoyed it and felt great improvements. I wanted to do this again as I went through quite a hectic period and now want to get back in shape. Kenzai is the best for this :)
2. In terms of the Kenzai Body challenge, what do you think is your greatest strength? Knowing that I have done this before and knowing that at times it will be difficult but will have the support of a great group of people!
3. What do you think will be your greatest weakness? Sticking with the diet and not drinking as much, as I often have client dinners.
Done and dusted GRADUATION POST
Sorry it took me so long to post, after completing the Kenzai Body program.
Although there were challenges and it had its ups and downs I made it. I really liked the daily exercises and on some days where I was unable to exercise I did miss them. I had a bit more trouble keeping my daily diet in check. Too many distractions and too many events.
Overall though I loved it and would do it again. Will look into the Alumni programs.
Its been a while since my last post! I've been on a holiday and just got back. I didn't take a holiday from Kenzai however and brought my gear with me (I do like the fact that its such little equipment and easy to take along). My diet was not that good however so I'll have to burn some more extra calories over the next couple of days and am looking forward to this.
Wow! Day 50, time flies! Went through a period where I was struggling a bit, but now I feel I can keep this up, more than half done! Hope that the next half will be as much fun so that I can keep going after!
I'm really starting to enjoy my daily jump ropes and exercise regimen. Sticking to the diet is really my weaker part, but sticking to it as best I can. Not really that much to update from my side other than that I'm really enjoying it and having fun!
This week I had my first struggles in keeping up with my schedule. I missed two days because of events and didn't want to catch up late at night. I'm trying to catch up. Am thinking of skipping my Sunday rest day. Will see how I feel tomorrow. Am happy with the training overall however!
